INTRODUCTORY 



Having found it quite impossible to fulfill the many 
requests made by museums, libraries, schools and clients 
for photographs of my works and knowledge of their lo- 
cation, I venture to publish this catalogue. 

I give here a list of my sculptures with their gen- 
eral character, location, for whom executed, etc., with 
photographic illustrations in half-tone of the more impor- 
tant works. 

In this compact form the desired information may 
be readily transmitted. 

A brief biographical sketch has been added and 
also such data as may explain and illustrate the various 
subjects. 

William Ordway Partridge 



New York, December, 1914. 



Dear Mr. Partridge: 

Remember your work is to make the invisible visible. 
Socrates (in Memorabilia of Xenophon) 

"The work of the Sculptor is to show through form the 
workings of the Soul." 

Socrates conceived the soul as invisible — the Sculptor 
is to make the invisible visible. 

President Frost, of Berea College.
